Low pressure will make its way from just north of New York State this morning to northern New England this evening.

With the low nearby, clouds will be plentiful throughout the day. A few spits of drizzle or a flurry may also be possible, but for the most part, the daytime hours will be dry.

Winds blow in towards the center of low pressure, so with the low to our northeast, winds today will be from the west-southwest. The wind will be blustery at times, with speeds up to 15 mph. Gusts should peak around 30 mph.

Temperatures will not be as warm as last evening but will still be well above average. Look for highs in the low 40s this afternoon.

As the low continues to pull away, winds will turn to the northwest tonight. Temperatures will fall through the 30s and into the 20s, prompting a slight response from Lake Ontario.

On and off lake effect snow showers will be possible during the evening and overnight, lingering into Saturday morning. 

The lake effect will be weak and disorganized. A few locations may see an inch of accumulation, but most areas will see no more than a light coating.

Here is a look at the weather for the next few days:

Saturday: Morning flurries. Some late sun possible. Morning lows in the mid 20s. Afternoon highs in the mid 30s.

Sunday: Thin clouds and filtered sunshine. Morning lows in the low 20s. Afternoon highs in the mid 40s.

Monday: More clouds than sun. Morning lows in the mid 20s. Afternoon highs in the mid 40s.

Tuesday: More sun than clouds. Morning lows in the mid 20s. Afternoon highs in the mid 40s.
